“There is within each of us a divine spark of greatness. Who knows of what we are capable if we only try?” ~Joseph B. Wirthlin …
When you look at all the successful people in this world, it is easy for you to feel that they are above you–that perhaps there is something special that sets them apart from you. After all, they have accomplished much more than most of us have, and they typically possess much greater power, wealth, and fame than the rest of us. Perhaps there is something that they have been gifted with that enables them the ability to achieve greatness?
Most of us confuse fame, power, and wealth with greatness, whereas they are not at all related. You can still be a man of greatness, and possess none of the above. The simple truth is that we each hold within us everything we need to achieve greatness; the “divine spark of greatness” exists in each of us by the mere fact that we were born–for we each have been created in the image of God who Himself is Divine.
We can accomplish great things in life if we can recognize that we were created to do just that. And when we are aware of this truth, we can simply allow greatness to work through us, as instruments of goodness and truth. In doing so, we become conduits for the greatness of the humanity that we all carry within.
Life needs us to believe in ourselves and give it our best efforts. We are needed, on every level, not to achieve fame, notoriety, and fortune, but to enhance the lives of those around us. How can you let your divinity shine today?
Be a beacon of greatness for others today.
Questions to consider:
How do you define greatness?
What are some ways in which you can be a great person?
What are some things that perhaps keep you from expressing your greatness?
